From the Washington Times.
President Obama walked in late Sunday on a moment of silence being held by world leaders in Turkey to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
Reporters traveling with the president said Mr. Obama had not yet arrived when other world leaders at the G-20 conference in Turkey began their silent observance around a large conference table.
Well, he’s late for almost everything. Why not this?

He didn’t even have the sense to wait until the moment of silence was over to enter. So sick and tired of this embarrassment people elected President. Shame on him!
It takes a special kind of narcissist to wave for a group photo.
What else could he have possibly had to do that was more important at the time?
The man shows all the telltale signs of serious mental illness, and/or addiction.
Case in point: ISIS is contained.
If I were him – I’d be doing some sort of mind-numbing drug at this point.
He should have been on time, he’s an adult and this isn’t high school anymore. However, since he was late he shouldn’t have ended until the observation was over. But not him, he’s too important to wait for anything, manners be damned.
entered – not ended.
A Army Reserve Center in Worchester, MA. was broken into and weapon’s stolen.
Watson, the games afoot.

Wasn’t important to him. Infact, he’d have been uncomfortable being there.
If only Pete Souza had set up the whole photo opp — then Obama could have gotten his cue — posed — and had another image for his legacy. Bad time to lead from behind.
How typical. Barry thinks of no-one but himself. Will he be the only one waving in the group photo again?
” I shudder to think what ISIS looks like uncontained ” Jake Tapper.
Why would he support a moment of silence for those who died or were injured? He supports the other side.
After reading page 261 in his book Audacity of Hope, the last shred of doubt has been removed.
His words, not anyone else’s.
Obama was the key no-show at the Solidarity Parade after the last Paris attacks, and Holder — in Paris at the time — couldn’t be bothered to attend.
If it was a golf game….never mind.
Our world’s leaders probably thought “hey, this guy’s been silent for years. We don’t need to wait for him.”
Oh, Mr. President, please get your head out of your butt and deal with this problem.
Right on. I would do a slight edit…”He’s been silent, late, clueless, ‘present’ and unfit for purpose for years. We don’t need to wait for him.” He’s more at home lecturing 5th graders (using a teleprompter, of course) than mingling with world leaders and discussing serious issues.
The sad thing is that he will never, in a thousand lifetimes, ever understand how out of place and inept he is as POTUS. He is surrounded by sycophants whose only job is to tell him how wonderful he is and laugh at all his jokes, whether they are funny or not.
Maybe he missed his connection. Oh, never mind.
Fashionably/Fascistly late. Prolly due to the release of ten more Gitmo prisoners last night.
Take away quote from the G20 on Syrian refugees:
“Society has not passed this exam with good grades.” said the man, who has refused to release his own.
French reporter to Obama: “Isn’t it time for your strategy to change?’
Obama: “Keep in mind what we have been doing… we have a military strategy (HaHa)… have been training troops on the ground (all FIVE of them); taking strikes against high value targets (Jihad John)…
“A strategy has to be one that can be sustained.” (Therefore, he has done nothing.) This is getting too embarrassing.
“This is getting too embarrassing.”
And revealing, as to where Obama’s head is at.
The man is a despicable excuse, for a supposed “leader.”
Did he come in smackin those lips around a stuck of gum?
